|Hot Picks for the Week!|
By John Judy
AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #540 by J. Michael Straczynski and Ron Garney. Black-suit Spidey beats the holy bejeebers out of some guys. Sounds like it could make a great movie…
BLACK PANTHER #27 by Reginald Hudlin and Francis Portela. Never mind that this is a “Civil War Initiative” crossover, you’re not going to believe who shows up on the last page of this issue. It’ll leave you hungry for more! Recommended!
CIVIL WAR SOFTCOVERS including FRONT LINE and PETER PARKER, SPIDER-MAN. For the completist we all harbor deep in our wallets.
COUNTDOWN #51 by Paul Dini and Jesus Saiz. No, you didn’t miss the last 50 issues. This is a weekly countdown from, you guessed it… Oh, and somebody dies.
CRIMINAL VOL.1: COWARD by Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips. Collecting the first story-arc of this awesome noir crime series. Recommended.
ESSENTIAL FANTASTIC FOUR VOL.6 SC by Stan Lee, Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, John Buscema, Ross Andru, and Joe Sinnott. Collecting FF issues 111-137, featuring the three Dees: Dragon Man, Diablo, and Doctor Doom! Plus the Inhumans!
ETERNALS HC by Neil Gaiman and John Romita Jr. Collecting the recent mini-series by two of comicdom’s hottest names. I’m talking to you, Guy Who Waits for the Trades!
GARTH ENNIS CHRONICLES OF WORMWOOD #3 of 6 by Garth and Jacen Burrows. Satan, talking rabbits, and an Aussie Pope. What more could anyone ask? Highly recommended. NOT for kids.
IMMORTAL IRON FIST #5 by Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction, and David Aja. History becomes a bit clearer as the boys get punchy.
JLA CLASSIFIED #38 by Peter Milligan ad Carlos D’Anda. The team has to reach Kid Amazo before Nature takes over Nurture.
MARVEL ZOMBIES: DEAD DAYS #1 by Robert Kirkman and Sean Phillips. The Secret Origin of the Marvel Zombies! To think it all started with a throwaway gag in Ultimate FF… NOT FOR KIDS. Highly recommended otherwise.
NEW AVENGERS #30 by Brian Michael Bendis and Leinil Francis Yu. A “Civil War Initiative” crossover. It’s got ninjas and Brother Voodoo. And yet Yu have to look…
NOVA #2 by Dan Abnett, Andy Lanning, and Sean Chen. A “Civil War Initiative” crossover in which Our Hero feels under-appreciated for his efforts.
PUNISHER WAR JOURNAL #7 by Matt Fraction and Ariel Olivetti. An in-depth examination of the complex issue of illegal immigration, plus lots of guys shooting each other.
THUNDERBOLTS #114 by Warren Ellis and Mike Deodato. A “Civil War Initiative” crossover in which Venom gets huge and threatens to eat people’s brains. Now there’s a guy who should be in the movies!
ULTIMATE POWER #5 of 9 by J. Michael Straczynski and Greg Land. Ultimate Thor and Hyperion duke it out. Finally! No Civil War. No Initiative. No kidding.
WOLVERINE ORIGINS #14 by Daniel Way and Steve Dillon. In which we still are not told how a kid with Papa Wolverine’s healing factor can sport tribal tattoos when tattoos involve scarring. The new Cyber also makes an appearance.
Y THE LAST MAN #56 by Brian K. Vaughan and Pia Guerra. Yorick, his kid, and the hardcore chick Mossad are all racing toward Paris. It won’t be just cold soup and rude waitresses, that’s for sure! Highly recommended. Plus, Y THE LAST MAN VOL.9: MOTHERLAND SC by Vaughan, Guerra, and Others. Collects issues #49-53. Gotta have it!
